My first garment. Never thought my new hobby would make me do math. I like the short skirt shown with the how-to, but I made mine longer so I could wear it to work. I’ll definitely have to try for

Material Notes

I’m not sure what it is, it was in a bargain bin. I just know that it can melt on the iron if you’re not paying close attention.

Burda, for the how-to!

    That fabric looks amazing, love the skirt. I think it looks better longer than the how to.
